Hello,

I have implemented a tree viewer for my model so I can drag and drop nodes from that viewer to the diagram editor. The feature provider extracts the model element from the tree node and returns the responsible Add feature. This works so far. Then I added a dialog popping up when the dragged model element is not allowed to be add. This is done in the canAdd method of the Add feature. But this dialog twice as the canAdd method is called twice, once by the dragEnter event and a second time by the dragOver event. Is there any reason why the dragEnter event calls the canAdd method? How can this be adapted?

Regards,
Joerg

Jörg,

this is simply the standard GEF behaviour. It checks if drag&drop is allowed
and might be used to display the stop sign.

ok, so that is the default behaviour and I will leave it that way, although it might be informative for the user why a certain DnD operation is prohibited.

Nevertheless thanks for clarification
Joerg
